... that works fine when I put it behind my local Apache and call it from a web browser.

When I try to execute it from command line in this way

php testSpatialite.php

I obtain this error ....

PHP Warning:  SQLite3::loadExtension(): SQLite Extension are disabled in /var/www/html/testSpatialite.php on line 16
PHP Warning:  SQLite3::exec(): no such function: InitSpatialMetadata in /var/www/html/testSpatialite.php on line 21
<h3>SQLite version: 3.8.11.1</h3>PHP Warning:  SQLite3::query(): Unable to prepare statement: 1, no such function: spatialite_version in /var/www/html/testSpatialite.php on line 29
PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function fetchArray() on boolean in /var/www/html//testSpatialite.php on line 30
r

I've set

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

and the mod_spatialite.so is in /usr/local/lib

What is wrong? Suggestions?

I've solved .... the problem is in my php.ini configuration about the

sqlite3.extension_dir

parameter. In

/etc/php5

I've these subdirectories

apache2  cli  mods-available

The php.ini under the apache2 directory contains

sqlite3.extension_dir = /var/www/sqlite3_ext

The php.ini under the cli directory contains

;sqlite3.extension_dir = 

NOTE: /var/www/sqlite3_ext is the directory where I've put my mod_spatialite.so library as shown in http://www.gaia-gis.it/gaia-sins/spatialite-cookbook/html/php.html

Changing, in the php.ini file under cli directory,

;sqlite3.extension_dir = 

in

sqlite3.extension_dir = /var/www/sqlite3_ext

and, from command line, typing

php testSpatialite.php

all works fine again!!!
